Metro have Manchester United fans rolling their eyes here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think Jorge Mendes is once again embroiled in a war of words with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.
There can only be one player who has caused that – Radamel Falcao.
The Colombian international has once again seen his future at the club questioned after a couple of less than stellar performances with his misses talked about more often than anything else.
Mendes defended one of his most lucrative clients and claimed: “I miss [Sir Alex] Ferguson at Manchester United. With him and this squad the situation would be different.”
Now as one of our punters notes over a pint, that is more than a little bit passive aggressive by anyone’s standards and given Louis van Gaal isn’t exactly a manager who sits back and lets his name be tarnished by the media or others in football, we are pretty sure he has a couple of responses lined up for these jibes!
Our regulars are now convinced that it Falcao won’t be penning a permanent deal at Old Trafford for next season and it remains to be seen whether he will continue to forge a career for himself back at Monaco in Ligue 1.
Manchester United fans. Has Falcao ultimately disappointed you this season or should the club persevere with him and sign him for next term? Let us know your thoughts below.
